Greek
The stunning restaurant, which is the first of its kind in Radnor, will transport guests to the Greek Islands with an atmosphere reminiscent of an inviting Mediterranean home, and a menu of authentic specialties, simply prepared, that represent the best of Greek cuisine. The restaurant specializes in whole grilled fish, which are flown in from the Greek islands, the shores of Morocco, Tunisia and Portugal, and procured from independent North American fishermen. We have created a welcoming restaurant designed with the comforts of a typical Greek home. We used materials such as hand-chiseled Jerusalem limestone floors, hand woven rugs, vaulted ceilings, antiqued stucco walls, wood plank floors and exposed wood beams to evoke the traditional atmosphere. A series of dining areas feature rustic farm tables, dark wood chairs with beige cushions and dining nooks with upholstered banquettes. The homelike ambiance is accentuated with whitewashed walls.

We arrived and were seated at a table with extreme glare due to sunset. I mentioned to server that I just couldn't order anything until the sun finally set. Staff made no steps to reduce glare (e.g., close blinds, etc.). For a high end restaurant, this was disappointing. Was my second time here. Won't come back.

The food was delicious, the service is excellent. It was pretty pricey at $100 per person plus tip.

The ambiance is casual elegant with dimmed lighting and several different rooms to choose from. Seating is comfortable. But the food is the star here, especially the fresh and respectfully prepared seafood. Even the crusty bread with hummus to start the meal is delicious. The dolmades are amazing. Tender, flavorful, and accompanied with yogurt flavored with mint & fresh dill. There are abundant sides to order from - do not skip the horta (cooked greens) and roasted potatoes. Again, the seafood is a standout. The fresh grilled halibut with a squeeze of lemon will make you feel like you are in Greece, or Sicily. A nice wine by the glass list with several excellent choices from Greece. Estia keeps you wanting to come back for more.

Went for Valentines Day dinner. Though I booked months in advance, we got the worst table in the house, right next to the kitchen. They had jammed so many tables in, the servers bumped into my chair every single time they came in or out of the dining room. Server didn't tell us the specials or go over the special valentine's menu until we specifically asked him to. Ordered the $85 seafood tower and half of it was still frozen when it came out. Not that we could eat it anyway since he didn't bring us proper utensils for it. Had to flag him dow for a 2nd round of drinks. Entre's were fine, but around the time we got them, half the serving staff must have come back from a smoke break, because the whole area of our table REEKED of cigarettes, which was significantly stronger every time one of the servers or bussers passed by and bumped my seat. It was gross. We spent a good deal of money for a pretty negative experience. We won't be going back for dinner again. May try the bar on a quiet night, but the whole experience left a very bad impression.

We had the best experience ever at Estia Taverna and our waiter was George. From the unique delicious cocktails, to the seafood tower, and overall service; we will be back again. We will be sure to bring our entire family. We recommend this restaurant to folks who want great service and an authentic dining experience.

The ambiance matches the flavor, effectively reminding the diner of Greek Isles and views toward the Mediterranean. I had previously been for lunch and thought the menu reasonable and enticing, particularly for those who favor a Greek palette, but the predictable taste of dinner dishes did not seem to warrant the high prices. Nevertheless, the plates were tastefully presented and the staff attentive, though perhaps a bit hovering.

The long wall with the booth seating on one side and chairs on the other are a little tight for several parties of four. It feels like you are dining with your neighbor.
The food was excellent , however I wouldn’t want to sit in that area again

Had a very enjoyable diner with my wife. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful in accommodating our requests as we are both vegetarians. While the menu seemed limited in vegetarian choices, he took the time to highlight some items that could be changed to accommodate us. Overall the food was very good and we will come back again.

We went for my son’s birthday. Lovely space, great service, but I was really surprised at the prices for what you were getting. Sorry, but the food is not even close to being good enough to charge the prices they do. Felt like a Main Line money grab. $19 for pita bread with three small 1/4 cups of diff spreads? $14 for sautéed greens side dish that was completely bland? Come on.

We arrived for an early reservation, and were placed at the absolute worst table in the restaurant: right next to a waiter station, where the waiters gathered to speak with one another often. It seems that deuces are discriminated against at Estia. The deuces are uncomfortable, the banquette seats are too low for the table (I needed a pillow, which someone gave me, which was nice). When we left an hour later, we say that several four tops had remained unoccupied, and could easily have been given to us.

Food was good as usual. No bargain, but that's not expected at Estia.

I should have asked for another table, but the host should not offer that table again until all other tables where you can reasonably seat a two top are filled.
